Why book your private tour of Bordeaux with us?

Visiting Bordeaux can be one of the most rewarding ways to spend your French vacation, however without a private guide to discuss the culture, history, and the tales of the fascinating characters who shaped the great city, then you can only ever scratch the surface of the intrigue, elegance, and charm that is in such abundance here.

Multi-Day Tour Itineraries To Inspire Your Trip

Bordeaux Cathedral

Having been consecrated in 1096 and featured two historic royal weddings, the Bordeaux Cathedral is not lacking in historic importance and certainly not in striking beauty. This Roman Catholic church was initially dedicated to Saint Andrew and in 1998 was designated (along with the basilica of St Severinus, the basilica of St Michael, part of Route of Santiago de Compostela in France) a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This gothic masterpiece also showcases the Marcadé collection (a group of forty-two illuminations, paintings, sculptures, and objects) as well as an incredible grand organ.

Place de la Bourse

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2007 as an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble of the 18th Century, Place de la Bourse is a grand square in Bordeaux and one of the city’s most recognizable sites and tourist attractions. Building started back in 1730 with the original plan featuring a statue of King Louis XV of France in the center of the square which was later destroyed during the French Revolution, with the sculpture ‘Three Graces’ now standing beautifully in its stead.
